I hate this but, I think that DH and I are going to take a break. With me being in school, him traveling out of town a lot for work, my RE being nearly 2 hours away, and searching for a house, it's really stressful. I have also decided to start weight watchers and working out again and I applied for an on-campus job at the library today as well. Who knows, maybe we'll get lucky and get a surprise. We have also been talking about adoption a lot lately. We have always discussed how we'd love to adopt at least 1 child and wanted to have a biological child first, but I am starting to think maybe it's not in the cards for us and it might not happen in that order or even at all, so we are just going to let nature take care of it for now. When we get a house and get moved in we may pursue further options as far as finding a good adoption agency(I have no idea where to start with that) We hope to have a house very soon. We looked at one back in May and I absolutely loved it but haven't had the chance to pursue it further since Ryan leaves to work out of town at the drop of a hat. Since then they have actually reduced the price and before he left to go out of town once again today, he called our realtor and talked to him a little bit. We're hoping to get together and maybe make an offer when he comes back. I will definitely still be around because I couldn't picture life without all of you ladies, I just won't be posting about my cycles as much.

Tabby, I'm sad but excited for you guys all at the same time. Getting a new house, going back to school, starting a new job.... and possibly adopting a baby!!! That's a lot for any one person to handle.

I really do hope that you stick around! We need as many cheerleaders as we can get around here. I'll keep saying my prayers that you get the surprise of your life and come back to post all about your natural BFP very soon! Good luck with the weight-loss, I'm still fighting with mine too. This January will be a year since I really started trying to shed the pounds, and with the holiday's coming up I am really worried I won't make it to my goal... ever!

Keep us posted on all your new and exciting developments going on!

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

Thanks so much girls! I am a little bummed but I know it's probably for the best. I know that being under this much stress if I did get pregnant would probably not be a good thing at all for the baby. We're just gonna let nature run it's course and who knows, maybe the clomid gave my body a jump start and I will O on my own for a while. I still have that deep longing in my heart to experience a pregnancy for myself but for now I am okay with just letting it go for a while. I am still pretty young if you think about it. I will be 29 in March and DH just turned 30 so I am sure we have several years left to achieve it. I just know that taking time out for myself right now will probably be one of the best things I can do for my physical and mental health. Stress is such a killer and it can quickly lead to depression. Then the aching to have a baby and seeing a bfn every month just pushes it to that so I am ready for this break. I am definitely not going anywhere because I am just as thrilled when I see all those beautiful BFPs going around on here because we all know how it feels to want a baby so badly and you want to be able to cheer on your friends when they finally reach the goal that you too are trying for. I know that one day I will be a mommy, whether it's biological or adopted.

Kari, that so happened to me! I lost 50lbs on weight watchers a little more than 2 years ago by counting points alone, not even working out and then the holidays came and it just poured back on. It's really hard to train yourself. Just hang in there and when you question whether you should or shouldn't eat something, just don't =)
